the miracle was gritty

There were those miracles at Lourdes. Not to mention those children that had made the headlines of one of the tabloids –they had cried rocks. These were bona fide miracles (the children who wept rocks was, admittedly, a rather gritty one), as uplifting as a Pat Robertson sermon. Hearing voices was just nuts.

Is right that the miracle and not the children 'was, admittedly, a rather gritty one'? How can a miracle be gritty (showing bravery and spirit)? What is your interpretation of gritty in this context?

Thank you
